The pandemic has hit the YWCA program participants and their families especially hard. Due to the pandemic, the YWCA Elgin was not been able to hold any live fundraisers in 2021. Therefore, this auction is a crucial opportunity for you to support the YWCA Elgin so that we are able to continue providing vital programming to participants.
